After a wretched run of games saw Arsenal hover just above the relegation zone, Mikel Arteta’s side have begun to pick things up in the Premier League in the last week or so.
The Gunners ended their dismal stretch with a superb victory over Chelsea in the London derby, before grinding out a very impressive 1-0 win away from home against Brighton.
The north Londoners next face West Brom on Saturday evening, with the Baggies coming into the game off the back of a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Leeds United last time out.
Arteta will surely be keep things the same in regards to his team selection, but there are one or two big calls that he may feel inclined to make. And with that in mind, below is a look at how Arsenal might line up for their Premier League clash against West Brom.
In goal, Bernd Leno will be hoping to add to his clean sheet numbers after picking one up against Brighton last time out, whilst the back four is also unlikely to see any changes.
Arteta may want to consider bringing Dani Ceballos into the fold however, with the £28.8m-rated ace’s extra bit of creativity and guile surely worth more in a game like West Brom than the industry Mohamed Elneny would provide.
The likes of Gabriel Martinelli, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka should all keep their places, whilst Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s anonymous performance against Brighton could see him drop out, with the in-form Alexandre Lacazette coming back into the side.
Predicted XI: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Tierney; Ceballos, Xhaka; Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette.
